Tutorial Scanning Sheets

Just a quick follow-up to our staff meeting & email.

  • Before the sheet will work properly you need to approve the script to run. That is found in the video below. It should take 2-3 minutes to get it to run.
  • Always make sure you are in the first column when scanning/typing in IDs.
  • I will be going around building by building over the next couple of weeks during tutorial to check in
  • If you are having any issues getting the script to run, please fill out this form HERE.

A WORTHY READ

Finding Renewal on Your Winter Break

High School is exhausting. There’s the sense of presence you need, the constant energy you bring, the give and take between students, the conflicts you have to navigate, the sense of pressure about the tests and the tension between what you believe about learning and what the system requires of you. Take time to relax and make the most out of your winter break.
